Patrick Wilson will most definitely be involved in Ant-Man. Screen Rant received confirmation from the actor at SXSW that he is playing an “important” role in the Marvel film, though he declined to elaborate beyond that.

Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas have already been cast as leads Scott Lang and an older Hank Pym, respectively. The web is buzzing that perhaps Wilson will be Darren Cross, CEO of a technology company who seeks the advice of surgeon Erica Sondheim. This would make particular sense because in the comics Lang also consults Dr. Sondheim and Cross later becomes a nemesis to Lang’s Ant-Man.

However, Screen Rant speculates that Wilson could instead be stepping in as a young iteration of Pym since the film is purported to include flashbacks.

Either role would work well for the handsome and charismatic Wilson. Hopefully we won’t have to wait until Ant-Man release on July 17, 2015 to find out.
